Boost IT visibility and business value

Dominic Marrocco - who sold ISP Firstnet Services Limited to Pipex (then named GX Networks) a year ago - has bought telecoms outfit 186k from Data Centre Holdings (UK) Limited.

Mr Marrocco, 31, has also acquired a major stake in Middlesborough-based Onyx Internet and snapped up two as yet unnamed ISPs and an ASP provider in his move back into the UK's ISP sector.

186k Limited - which was formed in April 2000 by Lattice Group - will be offering a range of ISP services including hosting, co-location and new services based on Voice over IP (VoIP).

Earlier today Lancaster-based ISP Business Serve announced it had splashed out £600,000 in cash and paper for telecoms and VoIP outfit Pipemedia. ®
